What to eat for a good mood at work?

Updated: Apr 15, 2021

Without a doubt, a poor diet can be one of the causes that distract your attention during working hours, without having a balanced and regular diet program, you risk ending the day without achieving the goals set or performing daily tasks. ,

A good diet is not the only element that can make you have a great day, but it is an essential and essential pillar.

What measures are needed to remedy this?

1-Drink water, pack lunches, eat healthy snacks... Everyone knows the basics of a balanced diet.

So why is it so hard to get one? According to Alyssa Fontaine, nutritionist and director of nutrition at Nautilus Plus, one of the problems is how we target behaviours to change. "Often, we want to go too fast, like going from zero lunches per week to five. Unfortunately, such a goal is likely to lead to failure. " 2- Revolt against bad habits: 

To succeed in healthy eating, you have to deal with one bad habit at a time. "Take a lawyer who eats out with clients three times a week and is aiming for "zero restaurants," says the nutritionist. She should start by cutting back to two diners. Once this first goal is targeted, it should be broken down into sub-goals, such as choosing a specific day to replace one restaurant meal with a lunch, going to buy the ingredients for that lunch, planning a time to prepare it, etc. "Each step completed is a step in the right direction. "With each completed step, you gain self-confidence and self-esteem. Now a virtuous circle is created! "

3- Stop punishing yourself:

In addition to setting realistic goals, improving your diet at the office (as well as anywhere else) requires rethinking your entire relationship with food. "Unfortunately, many people have a head full of food prohibitions," says Alyssa Fontaine. That's why she says it's important to relearn how to eat with your senses rather than your head. "That's what we call intuitive eating," she explains, "eating what you want when you're hungry, enjoying what you eat without feeling guilty and respecting your satiety. "
